Every year I wish for things to slow down a bit so I can soak it all in and actually enjoy this wonderful time of year. And every year it seems so much gets packed in that I barely have time to decorate. So for some reason, probably because we repainted our entry a fresh green, I pulled a late nighter and decorated this one area. I do have the Christmas tree up in the family room, but things are still sparse everywhere else. I decided to take photos for you, since I haven't posted much Show + Tell lately. Also, it probably won't look so good once Amelia comes tomorrow and I have to "asplain" why the wrapped boxes are just for decoration. Whatya bet she won't take my word for it? I have to shake them every once in awhile myself.
This is an adorable ornament that Jennifer got me last year. Funny, but all too common, is that I got her the exact same ornament. I didn't want it to get lost on the tree, so made a little shrine. Also, while I know my walls are not subtle, I must say that the camera insisted on turning the green a bit neon in this Bird Under Glass shot.
Now for a hot cup of cocoa and some Andre Bocelli Christmas music to reward myself (whatever). Hope this warms you up a bit and puts you in the holiday spirit. xoxo
